You vill do vat we tell you.

And you probably thought Trieste was in the European Union - a free state?

Headline on a posting on the Il Piccolo web-site today 26 September 2017.


The Clarification from the communal administration to the requests for information on the part of citizens.
( there followed the next in a small letter paragraph : (Up until 15 October in the Community of Trieste it is possible for a maximum of 7 hours a day as long as in the local environment the temperature does not exceed 20-22 degrees Celsius).

The Community of Trieste - Environment Services and Energy, following upon the numerous requests for clarification received in the past few days with regard to the possibility of proceeding to the 'switching-on' of central heating plants, recall to attention that our Community is inserted into the climactic zone "E", motive for which the plants can remain switched-on, in the whole of the territory from 15 October to 15 April for a maximum of 14 hours per day (including between 5 and 23). Outside of this period - recalls the note from the council - the central heating installations can stay 'switched-on' without specific authorisation, for a maximum of 7 hours per day, if the local environment does not exceed 20-22 degrees Celsius.

I've sent an e-mail to the Editor of Il Piccolo asking him/her why they still follow the old Communist bible in the city.
